GREGG RAISES $1.86 MILLION IN 1st QUARTER; $5.6 MILLION OVER CAMPAIGN

INDIANAPOLIS – Today the Gregg for Governor campaign announced it had raised an additional $1.86 million in the first quarter of 2016, bringing the total its raised for the cycle to $5.6 million.

“These are exceptionally strong fundraising numbers, especially for a challenger,” said Tim Henderson, Gregg for Governor campaign manager. “It’s further proof that Hoosiers are fed up with Mike Pence constantly embarrassing our state with his ideological pursuits. They are ready for the common sense, issue-focused leadership that John Gregg will bring so Indiana can begin moving forward again.”

The Gregg campaign raised a total of $1,869,938 in the quarter and has $5,085,837 left on hand, that is three times more than the same period in 2012. For the quarter 3,251 individual contributions were reported, or 94 percent of all contributions received. Of individual contributions, 97 percent were from Indiana and 85 percent were $100 or less.

“Each quarter this campaign is growing in financial support and the total number of donors. The momentum is clearly with us,” added Henderson. “While we will never have more money than Republicans in this state, we don’t need it to win. We just need to stay close and that’s what we continue to do. It’s a very good sign for us.”

The next quarterly reporting period ends June 30, 2016.

John Gregg has worked throughout the public and private sector. He served as President of Vincennes University, Speaker of the Indiana House of Representatives, worked for two Fortune 500 companies and is a practicing attorney today. Gregg holds an associate’s degree from Vincennes University, a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University, a master’s degree from Indiana State University and a law degree from Indiana University. He and his wife, Lisa, have three adult children and live in Sandborn in Knox County.
